    ON LIFT LAWS IN COLORADO. I HAVE ONLY HEARD OF A COUPLE TIMES WHEN PEOPLE GOT IN TROUBLE WITH LIFT LAWS IN COLORADO. ONE WAS A VEHICLE THAT WASN'T LIFTED PROPERLY WITH NO DROP PITMAN ARM AND HOMEMADE PARTS. THE VEHICLE COULDN'T BE DRIVEN OVER 40 MPH AND BE KEPT WITHIN 2 LANES. THIS VEHICLE WAS IMPOUNDED AND IN A COURT PRECEEDING WAS ONLY ALLOWED TO DRIVEN OFF HIGHWAY, TOWED, OR USED IN PARADES. IT COULD NO LONGER BE REGISTERED UNTIL IT WAS PROVEN THROUGH AN ENGINEERS REPORT THAT IT WAS SAFE. $$$$$$$ THE ONLY OTHER TIME WAS A VEHICLE THAT HAD ABOUT 60 INCHES OF LIFT, WHICH WAS DONE RIGHT BUT THE HEADLIGHTS, AND TAILLIGHTS WERE TOO TALL TO BE IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW. JUST THOUGHT I WOULD PUT MY 2 CENTS IN. WHEN MINE GOES HIGHER IT WONT BE WITH BLOCKS.

    Truck World is wrong on no lifts allowed in Colorado, All of the 4x4 shops out here could not install lifts if that were true. There may be something in the works though, I will try to call around and find out what is going on.

    It is legal for individuals and shops to install lifts in Colorado. But it might not be legal to drive a lifted vehicle on the public roads there. In Arizona the mudflap law is not enforced but I'll probably put some on my truck.

    Steve 88,

    I have a friend in AZ with a lifted Dodge Ram. He didn't have to get mud flaps, but they made him put fender flares on. They said his 35x12.56's were to wide and would throw rocks on people.

    I saw a lifted pickup with massive flaps hanging off the rear bumper with thick chains looped to hold them down. Looked kinda tough...
